The Weekender Sweater Kit
Ravelry dynamo designer Andrea Mowry's sweater patterns have been spectacularly successful, and The Weekender has been a runaway hit.
To celebrate this sweater design, we've put together kits using our Speckled Handpaints and our Kettle-dyed Semi-solids for this cleverly sophisticated pullover.
"This drop shoulder sweater is my most favorite addition to my handmade wardrobe! [...] I combined my favorite attributes - texture, faux seams, drop shoulder, and some positive ease to create this versatile, flattering sweater! No matter your body type, it is perfect for wearing to the office or out on your weekend hike in the woods. I’ve already knit a second version, leaving off the sleeves so I can wear it in warmer weather or layered over a long sleeve tee!" -- From the designer
